If fans deemed J.J. Abrams a controversial choice to reinvent Trek, how about the wickedly cool visionary behind propulsive and profane epics like Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds and the recently released Hateful Eight?! Using fascinating comments made by Tarantino himself on a recent Nerdist podcast episode as a springboard, hosts Cam Smith and Tyler Orton, along with special guest Patrick Johnston, examine the critically-lauded auteur and size up his potential as a future franchise player. Do his aesthetic and storytelling preferences suit the property? What kind of sci-fi tale would he tell? And, perhaps most importantly, which role would Christoph Waltz play? Plus - if all that wasn't enough - the trio also consider the prospects of famous Trekkie helmers Bryan Singer and Ben Stiller getting their chance to sit in the directorial captain's chair. So put on your hypothetical hats, kick back and enjoy!
